Hello students/parent, I’m Mr. J and I am looking forward to working with you this school year. Although I am new to Aldine I am not new to the counseling profession. I have 15+ years working in the educational/counseling field. I’ve worked at all levels; however I truly enjoy the high school level the most. Schools: Washington University in St. Louis, SHSU & UT-A. *Please, feel free to give me a call or stop by my office if you have a question or concern.

This year marks my twentieth year as an educator, fifteen of those years were in Aldine ISD. Our primary purpose at the Ninth Grade Center is to help students and their families transition from middle school to high school. I love watching live shows, relaxing with family and singing. Favorite TV show: Grey's Anatomy. I've been married for 15 years and I have three wonderful daughters.
